    SplatterHouse 3 for Sega Genesis!

    Silent HIll for Playstation and Silent Hill 2 for PS2.

    SSX 3 for PS2, probably the most entertaining game I played, and I still play these games, except for SH1.

    Just last night I was boarding down the mountain in SSX 3.

    Well, it was all NES for my childhood.

    Super Mario 1,2 and 3 though admittedly I spent far less time on 3 than it deserverd.  There is a special place in my heart for Super Mario 2, I loved how it all ended up being a dream and you defeat Wart by feeding him veggies, my 8 year old mind was blown.  I also had the first Ninetedo Power magazine which had Super Mario 2 on it, I couldn't get enough.

    Speaking of Nintendo Power (RIP), my mom got me a subscription right when it started and the bonus for the subscription was a copy of Dragon Warrior.  Sweetest sign-up deal ever!  I remember seeing the mail man show up and running home from my friends house.  There it was, in all it's glory, a brand new copy of Dragon Warrior along with my magazine.  Unfortunately I had an older brother who took the game and played it all day, I could only watch in anticipation of my own turn.  This of course was my introduction to RPGs so yeah Dragon Warrior is on the list as well.

    Let's not forget The Legend of Zelda, there can never be enough.

    I could keep on going but that's enought for now.

    Barnstorming (Atari 2600)

    Zork (Apple II)

    Rescue Raiders (Apple II)

    Too many to list really.. but those are my earliest memories.. there were a few other text based games I used to play alot on the Vic20 as well.

    Probably the first RPG I ever played was Secret of Mana; its influence on my creativity was immense. Why aren't there more multiplayer RPGs like that!? The sequel, Seiken Densetsu 3, is also incredible, though I wouldn't call that a "childhood" favorite.

    Another early favorite was Super Mario RPG. I loved that game!

    And, of course, I liked all the early Marios, and Zeldas (including OoT), and Mega Man games.

    Words can't express how I adore the original Final Fantasy. I just love classic RPGs, and 8/16-bit graphics in general. Ah, I remember so many Saturday afternoons spent pummeling Ogres around Elfland to get enough money to buy a Silver Sword... man, it was like Christmas when I was finally able to wield that thing.

    I'm a bit on the old side compared to some of y'all... :p

    • Ms. Pac Man - I could usually get up to the pear level on one quarter, farther if my kid sister wasn't hanging on me whining about her turn.
    • Tetris (Gameboy) - Whenever my mom didn't steal it. We also used to play the cabinet at Pizza Hut and she always caned me.
    • Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - First GB game I ever played, I'm still in love with it.
    • Super Mario Bros. 1 & 2 - There were actually cabinets of these, the former at the roller rink, the latter at my family's favorite restaurant...
    • Super Mario Land - The Chai music is still an earworm for me.

    Loved reading this. I would have left abe's oddysee clear off the list, and that has to be one of the best games of its generation. Interesting mechanics, a heavy story but a light playful attitude. Brilliant game.

    I feel in love with Vampire the masquerade bloodlines the first time I played it. A clever story, with fun use of the aforementioned bloodlines to give subtley different play throughs. Also, the ghost level terrifies me to this day. Very well written dialogue.

    I came to gaming quite late. I was in my mid teens. My father had a few consoles I and my sister were not allowed to play. So I never got to enjoy most of the silly little games many grew up with.

    Another early favorite was new neverwinter nights. The original campaign and first expansion are less than great games, but by the time I got there the community already had a huge selection of player made games. I loved it. So much community creativity. I'm sure you can identify ;) .

    following that was the first game with a sound track that I bought - jade empire. Not strictly childhood but I read all discovering video games at the time. The music makes that game. It really does. If you ever doubted the effect sound had on a game, pay jade empire.

    Baldur's gate 2 (I played it before 1). Party banter. 'Nough said.

    Cronotrigger gets an honorable mention. I was 23 when I first played it. But it was the first earlier generation game I really loved. Frog brings the feels.

    I lost many hours playing worms with friends. Humor and creativity in a tiny hot seat friendly package.

    I also used to go round a friends house to play 'exile' by spiderweb software. Later re released as Avernum , which I bought on CD ;) .

    I also love the Sims. No judging.
